Well, you could understand why my mother hasn't use the bag inspite of it being a gift from her daughter.
I told my mother that I'll make over the bag which she happily agree and she requested it to be in neutral shade of brown color.
Then I found this batik among my fabric stash and made some kind of sleeve to cover the outer part of the bag. I'm quite satisfied with the result, since it's a simple refashion yet gives a significant difference.
Just hope my mother likes her 'new' bag :)
